Put your hand up, point to the top of the index finger and Earl (like almost all Michiganders will do) will show you where he's from. Most people (New Yorkers) don't understand the geographic reference since it's too far west of NJ to notice.
After doing advanced collegiate research at Michigan State in TV & Film - mostly by watching vs. studying - he exited MSU with his business degree. And like many new graduates he meandered through small towns (Owosso, MI) , cities (Chicago, IL) and jobs - retailing, road construction & head hunting. After abandoning those amazing opportunities, none of which he excelled at by-the-way, he moved from Chicago to Columbia, MO and started his television career in cable TV. At the bottom rung of course -- selling cable door-to-door. It certainly wasn't what he had envisioned when he graduated from college, nor did he think it was his entrance into the entertainment business...but it was!
He'd tell you he had a well thought out plan. He didn't. It was good choices, chance, timing, serendipity, luck and sacrifice that led him to Comcast, TimeWarner, Discovery and to opening LSD with his business partner Marian. He'll tell you he was acquiring "skill-sets" he'd need when he go out on his own. If accuracy is what's important, it was some of that as well as just some basic instinct.
Either way, he acquired a unique set of experiences, mentors, knowledge and skills - all of which he brings to LSD and their clients. It certainly helps him understand the challenges they face since he's walked down many of the same paths. And he feels he's right where he should be.
In 1984 Nelson emigrated from a calm suburb that couldn't contain his energy (or the loud music.)
Returning to the rivers of his parent's youth in Brooklyn, he studied Fine Art and Illustration at the School of Visual Arts. Upon graduating it turned out the mouse was much mightier than the brush. He found he could leverage the many years he spent as a computer enthusiast, programmer and hobbyist, along with a freshly minted BFA, into a career in the nascent desktop publishing zeitgeist. PhotoShop 1.0 was still 2 years from being released.
After several years in print design and art directing, he used his passion for typefaces, music and skills in animation software to make the leap from the printed page to the moving image. Starting out in television post-production and motion graphics as an Art Director/Animator at Downtown Digital for the AT&T ITV trials. Shortly after that he was recruited by Invisible Dog (formerly Editor's Gas), a post-production house, as a graphic designer and effects artist working on national television campaigns for many well-known brands. He eventually became senior Flame Artist and Visual Effects Supervisor.
Looking for more challenges, he decided to freelance as a Flame Artist, 3D artist and designer until he found the right chemistry to join a team again. He finally found a home at the LSD Group, Inc. as Director of Animation & Visual Effects.
A country boy in the Big City, Chris Waner dug his way out of a position as a used car salesman in Wichita, Kansas in order to pursue a degree in English Literature and Secondary Education. After teaching art for several years, publishing a few short stories and poems, and illustrating two children's books, he took his experience to New York City to complete an MFA in 3D animation. His work has been featured in magazines, literary publications, web sites, commercials, broadcast, and a feature film, as well as festivals such as Sundance and The Tribeca Film Festival. Presently Chris is a Visual Effects Supervisor for The LSD Group in New York City. Website by
